A Yemeni airliner has crashed in the Comoros archipelago in the Indian Ocean with 150 people on board, the Reuters news agency has said.
Nadhoim said the accident happened in the early hours of Tuesday, but could not give any more details.
"There is a crash, there is a crash in the sea," said an unnamed official who answered the phone in the Yemenia office in Moroni. He declined further comment.
An airline official in Yemen declined to comment.
The location was not immediately known, but a medical worker in the town of Mitsamiouli, on the main island Grande Comore, said he had been called into the local hospital."They have just called me to come to the hospital. They said a plane had crashed," he told Reuters.
The Comoros are located about half way from the coast of eastern Africa to the northern tip of Madagascar and has some 800,000 inhabitants.

Wow, it's amazing the ammount of planes that are going down in the year. I see a rise in plane related catastrophies.
My heart goes out to the friends and families of those people onboard. Hopefully some survivors will be found.
